Summary
"With global cooperation and cohesion in decline, Hotez, a former member of the US Science Envoy Program, zeroes in on the factors that drive our most controversial and pressing global health concerns, including war and conflict, climate change, antivaxxers, and poverty. He proposes historically proven methods to soothe fraught international relations while preparing us for a safer, healthier future. The 2020 coronavirus crisis makes the book more timely than ever"-- Provided by publisher.
